When Sullivan is Right, He’s Terrific

By the way, one of the stupidest argument against the war is “Hey! It was only 3000 people!” Prescinding from the fact that it was 3000 *innocent* people, it is worth remembering that, had it been an hour later and the planes struck the buildings lower down, it could well have been 50,000-100,000 people. In this act of war, it was the thought that counted. All I’m saying is, give war a chance. The world will be a much better place without Saddam and with Radical Islam reeling under crippling and, one hopes, annhilating blows. Terrorism is like a spotted owl. Destroy its supporting environment and it finds it difficult to thrive. Destroy the states (I would include the Saudi entity) which support it and it’s profoundly weakened.
